The HealthTypes

divider

There are six HealthTypes featured on the HealthType circle – each one with different ways to stay healthy, from being super-active to reclining on the couch! Get to know the Activator, Connector, Guardian, Diplomat, Sensor and Crusader.

The Activator

divider-01

The natural athlete, usually shorter in stature, with naturally toned muscles, the Activator has a natural hourglass figure. Their hands and feet are smaller than other HealthTypes and they naturally like to stay active and busy.

#Activators have a short digestive system so the digestive process happens quickly. Be sure to eat frequently, with up to five or six small meals each day. Including animal proteins is important and variety helps the Activator stay interested and their taste-buds excited.

The Connector

Similar to the Activator, the Connector is smaller in stature but with a broader bone structure, often with a wider chest and good, strong calves. Variety is the key for a Connector to stay happy and healthy.

#Connectors have a great relationship with food – how it tastes, how it feels and even how it looks. It’s important for the Connector to keep this in mind when selecting foods to eat. A variety of proteins, fruits and vegetables that differ in taste, colour and consistency will keep the Connector’s senses satiated, and an environment filled with other healthy, conscious eaters will make a fulfilling meal all round.

The Guardian

divider-03

The Guardian is the strongest of all HealthTypes, with thick, strong bones and the capacity to hold the most muscle. The Guardian is naturally a provider and conserver, and hence has the ability to store fat easily in case of famine later on.

box-01
With that nurturing focus, #Guardians also tend to like large portions and foods that gives pleasure. The Guardian can use these strengths to bring the family together for dinners and events. A Diet high in vegetables, low in fruits with just a little animal protein here and there is best suited to the Guardian to ensure plenty of energy and maintained health.

The Diplomat

divider-01

As the most naturally nomadic body, the Diplomat has a sturdy body with a long gut that can easily fast 5-6 hours between meals. The Diplomat body naturally has a slower pace than others and finds happiness in comfort.

box-01
#Diplomats have the longest digestive system so a five- to six-hour fast between meals is very healthy for this body. In fact, the Diplomat may be totally satisfied when eating only 2-3 times each day. A regular diet high in vegetables and low in animal proteins is best to avoid fermentation and further complications through the long gut. Eating is a pleasure-filled activity for the Diplomat so it’s important to choose carefully and take joy in both the foods that are eaten and the company kept during meal times.

The Sensor

The Sensor is naturally long and thin, with light bones and the tendency to store very little fat. With this in mind, the sensor is usually sensitive to the cold and requires fuel like snacks to keep their energy throughout the day.

box-01
#Sensors naturally have a high metabolism and low body fat so are unlikely to gain weight, even if eating unfavorably for a period of time. However that doesn’t mean that a Sensor can eat a poor diet and be healthy. Sensors need to keep the nervous system in good shape with healthy fats, the digestive system working efficiently with well cooked meats and vegetables, the immune system strong with the right foods and thermoregulation maintained with warm meals and drinks.

The Crusader

The Crusader has a long, lean frame but has the capacity to hold or build more muscle than the Sensor. Their joints are of a medium size and their body is built for endurance, allowing them to push through and achieve whatever crusade they pursue.

box-01
#Crusaders have a high metabolism and a tendency to maintain a strict regime which means it’s unlikely that you will gain weight accidentally. Eating three to four times a day maintains a Crusader’s energy and a good steady intake of carbohydrates is required to continually fuel the ever-working  brain and body. Well cooked proteins are a must as the Crusader stomach tends to have lower naturally occurring levels of hydrochloric acid than other bodies. Avoiding alcohols and other toxins like processed sugars is important for the Crusader body and brain to function at its peak performance level.

Where do the HealthTypes come from?

Your HealthType is calculated from a series of questions about your body – things like how you handle heat, the size of your joints and comparative length of you limbs. With this information we can deduce how your body developed from the time when you were conceived. Intrigued? You can learn more about the HealthTypes in the Online Course available now!
